Court adjourns 4 DPP ‘rebels’ case, sustains Nakhumwa’s injunction

The High Court in Lilongwe has adjourned to Monday next week a case in which four Democratic Progressive Party (DPP)  “rebels” are challenging their expulsion from the opposition party.

Nankhumwa: Remains Leader of Opposition 

The court has also sustained an injunction DPP vice president for the south Kondwani Nankhumwa obtained to remain as Leader of Opposition in parliament.

The four; Nankhumwa, secretary general Grezelder Jeffrey, Treasurer General Jappie Mhango and Mulanje west MP Yusuf Nthenda had also their injunction sustained to remain as members of the party.

Judge Kenyatta Nyirenda heard arguments from both sides; the DPP lawyers and the party “rebels” lawyers side and is expected to deliver the ruling on Monday on whether the party has the powers to fire Nankhumwa as Leader of Opposition in parliament and has grounds to fire Nankhumwa, Jeffrey, Mhango and Nthenda as party leaders and members.

Chipani Cha banja la Muthalika called DPP if this is the party’s identity then you can be firing people at will.Koma ngati ndi cha anthu a ku Malawi pitani ku convention mukawachotse anthu amenewa

Chikomekome cha nkhuyu mkati muli nyerere is how I can describe Nankhumwa. You think dpp will come back with your behaviour of indiscipline and insubordination?

Freedom of association also means the association can fire its members, otherwise it stops being freedom of association. One should not force himself to be a member of some group against the groups own will.

Many people don’t understand that.

Association is a two way street,it’s like saying Banja silinathe,and asking the court to ascertain kuti lilipobe. Banja limenelo ndi banja?
